Visiting the Japanese Maple Grove
Posted by Francesca
If you love Japanese Maples, then you know that autumn is when those lovely trees put on an amazing display. You may recall just over a year ago when Sharkey and I blogged about how we filmed the planting of the grove. Well, I guess the planting was a big success because the trees seem to be very happy. Please join us for a little stroll through the Japanese maple grove.
1 Hey, Sharkey! Let's go explore the Japanese maple grove. I heard that it's aglow with autumn foliage.
2 It's a bit of a hike, but we're almost there.
3 Ah, yes, Franny. This was a good idea. The colors of those maples are amazing!
4 These trees are so magical. It seems that they change colors overnight!
5 I love Acer Palmatum 'Winter Flame' - so aptly named because its green leaves turn a vivd yellow and its bark becomes bright coral red in winter.
6 And I love Acer Palmatum 'Tamukeyama' - this is a lace-leaf maple that grows into a lovely umbrella shape - so nice for sitting under.
7 Acer Palmatum 'Osakazuki' - This famous cultivar is best known for its intense crimson fall color. It's really stunning.
8 That must be another 'Osakazuki'. See what I mean about stunning?
9 Hey, why are you laughing at me? What's so funny, Francesca?
